With content created exclusively for American Clavinova users, USA Edition turbo charges your CVP-700 series Clavinova with extra Voices, Styles, and over 1,000 Music Finder setups for specific songs so you can get playing quickly. New to USA Edition 7.0, are Style Guides which use the Score Display feature to show you when to press Intro and Variation buttons to get the most out of recreating some classic songs. There’s even a talking panel tour that tells you the function of each button on the panel!
With this method, recorded performances are saved to the instrument as an Audio file. Recording is done without designating the recorded part. Since it is saved in stereo WAV format of normal CD quality resolution (44.1kHz/16-bit) by default, it can be transmitted to and played on portable music players by using a computer. It can also be recorded in MP3 format (44.1 kHz sample rate, 128/256/320 kbps bit rate, stereo). This instrument allows you to record up to 80 minutes per single recording.
Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM)
In a grand piano, strings and sounds resonate throughout the entire body of the instrument to produce a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. Not only are the strings vibrating as you play, but other strings ring as well, in reaction to ones you play. Some keys strike a different number of strings depending on their position on the keyboard; this explains why the sound of an acoustic piano is so complex and rich.
This experience is reproduced perfectly on select Clavinova models through Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) which calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard, from one instant to the next. As a result, the Clavinova sound features a seemingly limitless number of elements in common with an acoustic piano.
The Style Recommender is an intelligent function that allows you to find a Style that suits the type of music you feel like playing. You don’t even need to know the name of the song; the rythmic feel alone will do. Just play a bar or two of a simple rhythm or piano tune and a list of Styles that match your playing will instantly be displayed.
When Voice Guide is active, the Clavinova speaks information from the current display or operation being executed. This allows those who have visual impairments to enjoy playing and using the instrument.
*When using Voice Guide, make sure that the USB flash memory containing the Voice Guide files is connected to the instrument.
*The audible information of the functions/screen supported by the Voice Guide is limited.

You can enjoy karaoke backing with songs stored in your Clavinova or downloaded from YamahaMusicsoft.com.

Performance Assistant Technology (P.A.T.)
Performance Assistant Technology (P.A.T.) lets you focus on playing the rhythms while the instrument worries about playing the right notes of MIDI songs. Simply enable P.A.T., press play, and play along with the MIDI song and any note you hit will fit right in. Even a first time player will sound great. You can use this feature to practice rhythms without being distracted by bad sounding notes.
